Been waiting to see this topic light up in here and it hasn't frown

Puzzle Quest for the PC was released a couple of days ago. Designed by Steve Falkener of Warlords fame. There has been a PC demo out for some time but first time round this just didn't hook me in. Second time round - maybe because I now know the game is now on PC i'm loving it, can't stop playing it despite TF2 and WIC pulling me as well.

RPG - Meets bejeweled, not that i've played bejeweled. Game seems to develop from story line to being able to take over cities, capture prisoners etc.

Definite recommended to check out

There was a topic going on it a week ago or so, over here: http://www.gamingtrend.com/forums/index.php/topic,22634.0.html

Personally, I ended up downloading it from XBox Live Arcade for some reason.

Ahh I missed that - that post seemed to just die frown Then again I wasn't involved in it  drool

Certainly its proved a good buy on my side for pc - with no xbox and not really wanting it on my children's ds it was a bit of a no brainer. For those interested i used gamersgate - the patches from the main site just worked fine, no different patches etc. Would like to try the MP out - the lack of a lobby or game browser if a bit of a killer for that one.

I picked it up for PC.  It makes a good work-break distraction.  Unfortunately for me, I'm studying for my CCNA cert, so anything that distracts is verboten.  Study study study...

I got burned out on the excellent PSP version. It's too bad they didn't release it on PC simultaneously with the others. It really made no sense to have a demo on PC (!) initially and then wait this long to actually release a full version on it.

What he said for me exactly only replace PSP with DS. If they had released the PC version within a few weeks of the DS/PSP release, I would have bought it. Too late now. But, if you don't have it and don't care about playing anywhere, get the PC version.

The part I wouldn't mind testing is the MP play - just need to find some other opponents who I have on xfire/steam or msn.

for me it's a title that's gotten buried under all the under new releases.  I'm planning on just grabbing the DS version now.

Although my children have a DS - on a personal front I just prefer doing this type of game on the big monitor. Have you played the PC demo?

yeah, when it came out awhile back.  I liked it but right now if I turn on my PC I end up being sucked into NWN2 or TF2, and theres Hellgate/Witcher (and various 360 games) coming up soon which will take up more time.  with the DS I can sneak in playtime at work and other places when I'm not at home.

Nice thing about the DS version was that it's a perfect toilet game.  I could fit 2-3 battles into the course of an average bowel movement.
